Thanks, @tikvah, that's exactly what I'm seeing so far as well. Some weeks ago I tried editing the indicated configuration file to no avail. I also called Sonic Support and received no real guidance. (My first disappointment there ☹️)

Sonic needs to make PHP 7 available to its WordPress-using hosting customers. It won't solve all of the PHP or WordPress & plugin security issues (of course) but it will allow us to update our WordPress core software to the most current versions. That's the whole story. I don't understand why it's not happening.

Sonic has outgrown the stage it was in when I first joined, when it offered a dialup UNIX host and was tinkerer-friendly.

I'd welcome creation of a new tier of Support people who would qualify as geeks. Old graying bearded ones, perhaps?

Sad to say I've gotten used to being told by Support youngsters that I should "ask in the Forums" for geeky help.

I learned a whole lot in those early UNIX years, though I'v forgotten most of it these many years later.

Same! I love Sonic. I have been a happy subscriber for decades now. I've learned tons over the years by reading these very boards (remember news.sonic.net?)

This PHP 7 thing is so weird to me because they are not communicating with us at all about the update and whether or not it will happen. It's out of their usual corporate character.
